We had the privilege of staying in a small village just outside of Tripoli for 5 weeks. During that time we got to know many of the villagers and despite the language barrier, they got to know us as well.

Exterior walls were built with 14,000 boulders weighing 5-10 tons each. This enormous scaled building was called ...

... name and crime being inscribed on the base of a statue of Zeus outside the stadium, which he would have to pay for, and all the fans spitting on it as they entered the stadium. Luckily this custom has been phased out since I didn't fancy paying for a statue of Zeus.
